I love make up. I don’t wear it SUPER regularly, I mean, I’ve always been one for liner and mascara, but shadow and foundation and blush and lip stuff was never my thing. Well, about a year ago, there was this gal at work who would always do such an amazing job on her eyeshadow, I mean, we’re talking Boy George awesome so one day we got to talking about it and she told me about how she watches YouTube for make-up tutorials and I sure enough got into it myself (MakeUpGeekTV is adorable and amazing!). Now I’ve got terrible skin so I still don’t use foundation and every time I go to put on lip stuff, which I have a ton of stuff for, I end up wiping it off shortly after, but eyeshadow is something I really got into. On the tutorials they would use this big pallet, and 88 color pallet that I assumed was so expensive but sure enough, it was only like 10 bucks thru a make-up place on the other side of the state…and the colors are really vibrant and for that price it was easy to get it one set for Matte and one set in Shimmer. So I started buying some drug store stuff but soon realized that not all eyeshadows are the same…some just don’t go on as vibrant as others so I tend to be very weary of them…well, today Wet N Wild had some on sale for clearance…$2.49 for:
Well, I figured it would be worth a shot and I tell you what, the result is literally JUST as good as my Lorac Color me Couture pallet I got and use all the time from Sephora:
Dont get me wrong, Lorac is still my favorite eyeshadow set ever, but this is a good keep-at-work back up and for 2.50 it’s WORTH IT!!! I’m just bummed that I dropped a green set on the ground and busted it all up…but how much eyeshadow does one girl need? But I do have a tiny set of make up here at work that I really do end up using regularly. It’s funny because for instance, I use primer for the eyelid, you need something to grab the shadow right, but for me I used a lipstick type of concealer instead of the expensive eyeshadow primers that they sell…good old Wet N Wild concealer stick does the trick like you don’t know! So I have one in my purse, one at work and one at home…along with a little set of eyeshadow, now my Wet N Wild set here at work, eye liner and lip gloss…it’s like, I’m set where ever I am!
